Graduate School of CISRI Group
China Iron & Steel Research Institute Group carry out doctoral and master's education and post-doctoral training though Central Iron and Steel Research Institute (CISRI) and Metallurgical Automation Research and Design Institute (ARIM).
Introduction to Graduate Education of CISRI
Central Iron and Steel Research Institute (CISRI) is the most reputable comprehensive research institute in metallurgical industry in China, established in 1952, which focuses on design and manufacture of advanced metal materials, development of industry key common technologies, research of application technologies, and system integration. Especially, R&D fields include iron and steel and matched welding materials, superalloy, metallic functional materials, metallurgical process and equipment technologies, comprehensive utilization of resources and energy-saving and environmental protection technology, analysis and testing technology and so on.
CISRI entered into graduate education in the 1960s. CISRI is one of the first research institutes that can recruit graduates and has right to confer master’s degree and doctor’s degree after graduate enrollment and postgraduate enrollment are recovered in 1978 in China. Graduate school of CRSRI was founded in August 1982, and responsible for the management of graduates. CISRI was approved to establish mobile station for postdoctoral research by National Post-doctoral Management Committee in 1985, and recruited the first postdoctoral student majored in materials science and engineering in China. At present, there are 2 mobile stations for postdoctoral research, 2 doctoral degree programs in the first-level disciplines, and 3 master degree programs in the first-level disciplines. There are 61 doctoral supervisors and 76 master tutors. Up to September 2019, 889 masters,879 doctors and 171 postdoctoral researchers have been recruited.
As the graduate scale expands unceasingly，a complete set of graduate training and management system has been established and ensure to improve the comprehensive quality of graduate students. Graduate school of CISRI was awarded “Advanced Collectives of Beijing City for Graduate Student Recruitment” and “Advanced Collectives for National Degree and Graduate Education Administration”. Many graduate students obtained the honorary titles and rewards. For Example, Doctor Ma Ming-tu won the honorary titles of “Chinese Doctor and Master Degree Recipients with Outstanding Contributions”. The dissertation of Doctor Shang Jia-xiang gained “National Hundred Excellent Doctoral Dissertation Award”.
CISRI adheres to the policy of development of “Science and technology as the guide, industry as the pillar, talent as a fundamental, innovation as soul”, and builds a first-level technology enterprise group. Graduate education should be based on strengthening and improving the quality of students in order to training high-level applied engineering personnel with “solid basic theory, broad professional knowledge” and “innovation spirit, innovation ability, practical ability”. Graduate school has become an important base for the cultivation of high-level and high-quality innovative talents in engineering field for CISRI and industries.
Introduction to Graduate Education of ARIM
Metallurgical Automation Research and Design Institute（ARIM） was founded in 1973. At present, it is in the leading position in the fields of automatic control technology, computer application technology, high-voltage frequency conversion technology and application, high-performance AC speed regulation control algorithm research, detection technology and automation device. And has formed a comprehensive ability to undertake large-scale and complex automation projects, various types of automation projects and control equipment, widely used in metallurgy, building materials, coal, chemical, petroleum, power and other industries, with outstanding results.
The graduate education of Metallurgical Automation Research and Design Institute（ARIM）started earlier. It is one of the first batch of research institutes to recruit graduate students and have the right to grant master's degree after the college entrance examination system was restored in 1978. In 1984 and 1990, he was awarded the master's degree of "control theory and control engineering" and "testing technology and automation device" respectively. In 2005, the right to confer master's degree in "power electronics and power transmission" was added. The major of "control theory and control engineering" and the University of science and technology of China jointly recruited doctoral students and established a postdoctoral workstation in 2001. As of September 2019, ARIM has enrolled 394 master degree students, 12 doctoral students and 8 postdoctoral students.
With the continuous development of the graduate team, the management of graduate students is also increasingly strengthened, and gradually standardized and improved the postgraduate training and management system, and the quality of postgraduate training continues to improve. Over the years, the graduate students trained by the Metallurgical Automation Research and Design Institute（ARIM）have played an important role in different positions. At present, many of them have become the leaders of various disciplines in the institute, the new graduate tutors, and the leading backbone of the Institute. They will continue to make contributions to the development of the Institute.
In the face of the rapid development of science and technology, Metallurgical Automation Research and Design Institute（ARIM）adheres to the concept of people-oriented, training and optimizing the talent team. Postgraduate education should be based on strengthening and improving the quality of students in an all-round way, focusing on the cultivation of innovation awareness, innovation ability and entrepreneurship of graduate students, actively creating good training conditions and creating characteristics, so as to make graduate education an important base for the cultivation of high-level and high-quality engineering and technological innovation talents in our college.
